Research Centers of Excellence



Research Centers of Excellence

The School of Energy Resources (SER) provides funding for the Centers of Excellences (COE) to be established as mechanisms to bring together faculty and graduate students from multiple disciplines to develop important energy research programs. With SER funding, the COE are expected to capture external funds and attain financial independence within a few years. COE evolve with time; new groups may form to work on emerging challenges, while some centers may disband as their programs are completed. 


  • Center for Economic Geology Research

    The Center for Economic Geology Research (CEGR) engages in the research and development necessary to keep Wyoming at the cutting edge of geological CO2 storage. Through various research projects and cooperative initiatives, CEGR aims to speed the development & deployment of successful, safe geologic CO2 storage, both in Wyoming and elsewhere.

Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute

Established by the Wyoming Legislature in 2004, the mission of the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) is to facilitate a meaningful and measurable increase in recoverable oil and gas in Wyoming that may otherwise not be realized. LEARN MORE >>>

Bayesian Learning Consortium:

The Bayesian Learning Consortium is an industry-sponsored research consortium focusing on advanced quantitative methods for subsurface characterization. 

The goal of the consortium is to develop innovative quantitative methods to improve the characterization of subsurface reservoirs for hydrocarbon exploration and carbon dioxide sequestration and quantify the uncertainty in the numerical models.
